Coming to a Leather and Metal Shop Near You...

Ok. I was a little nervous to post the line drawing of the Squirrels in Love purse, because at this phase of the design game, they look like two diabolical rats plotting world domination: not unlike Pinky and the Brain (except for the whole appearance thing!).... I promise that after tooling and color these two will be the pinnacle of anime-eyed sweetness.

I hope to have this purse in the Leather Shop in a few weeks, before I leave on my 10 day Los Angeles excursion.

The 2nd in the corsage series: poppy flowers!!! Should be finished in a few short, happy days!

I wanted to put a few affordable options in the Metal Shop today: the above is a delicate chrysoprase ring in size 6 - the price will be reduced a bit because the stone is rustic - there are a few pits and dendrites. These do not detract from the appearance at all: in my opinion, they make it all the lovelier.

Lastly, I have made a swinging little pierced sprout necklace: oh, it is so lovely.
So delicate and strong, all at once.

Both sterling gems will be in the Metal Shop in a few shakes of a squirrel tail :)

Awww the squirrels are so cute. Sings "they're pinky they're pinky and the brain brain brain brain...one is a genius the others insane". Now that's going to be stuck in my head all day.

I love the squirrels and their diabolical schemes: first your bird feeders, then the universe! I cannot wait to see the poppies corsage cuff all carved and colored. I can already tell it's going to be lovely.

Those poppies will drive me to distraction. I am too broke to buy one, but oh I would like to...
